SPSS – Correlation

Correlation analyses are a set of statistical tests used to determine whether there are relationships between two or more variables. At their most basic level, simple bivariate correlations, using Pearson’s Product-Moment Correlation test, are used to assess the initial relationship between two scale (numerical) variables. For example, a researcher might be interested in understanding the bivariate relationship between several business variables; however, it is important to note that correlation does not imply causality.
